The Natixis Foundation for Research & Innovation awards grants to Ph.D students and provides funding to university research projects.
Scolarships and research grants
The Foundation regularly reaches out to Ph.D programs, business schools and the directors of Master’s programs and allocates doctoral grants: either full funding over a three-year period, or funding complement to complete a Ph.D thesis.
Conditions for complementary research funding
The Natixis Foundation for Research & Innovation also funds research projects and events in the quantitative research field.
